What a crazy idea - how would they police it for a start
For genuine dog lovers / keepers it would be adhered to, probably involving a small tax / fee
This fee would then help pay for the enforcement of those causing problems at the moment who of course would ignore it. Another case of the government getting the public to pay for the ignorance / bloody mindedness of others.
exactly what i was thinking too. StuyMac!
I think the competance test is a stupid idea...it will cost money to set up and we, the responsible owners will pay for it. Then the government will see it as another source of revenue and the cost to us will be even higher.
Microchipping and third party OK! but how that stops dog attacks or irresponsible owners god only knows!
Without a load of people to check every dog, it won't work.
